Mr And Mrs MP

The Parliamentary bug has bitten another spouse. Sowmya, wife of former Union minister Anbumani Ramadoss of the PMK, is keen to enter Parliament via the Rajya Sabha even as her husband defends his Lok Sabha seat. Anbumani couldn’t win his party a single seat in Tamil Nadu, though he projected himself as a CM candidate in 2016. He’s convinced now that Delhi is his calling. So why not take the wife along. When Mulayam and Laloo can make their kin elected representatives, why not PMK founder Dr S. Ramadoss? If one can forget he had sworn while forming his party in 1989 that he and family members would not fight an election.
